St Stephen's Primary School, based on Church Lane, in Fradley, near Lichfield, has received funding from Barratt Homes.
Forest schools are natured-based learning environments.
Claire Hinsley, a teacher at the school, said: "We are a growing, ambitious village school, but we have lost some of our outdoor space due to the school’s expansion.
"We now want to develop the space to its full potential, and take advantage of what we have to use with the children and aid their outdoor learning.
"When Barratt Homes got in touch to say that we were going to receive a donation of £1,000, we were very excited as it meant that we could move forward with our plans and has enabled us to purchase equipment for our Forest School."
Adrian Evans, managing director of Barratt Homes West Midlands, added: "As one of the UK’s leading developers, it is really important that we support the community in the areas in which we build.
"St. Stephen’s Primary School are working hard to support their pupils in and out of the education environment, and we are happy to support them in the development of their forest school.
"We wish them the best of luck with their project, and in difficult times like these we’re encouraging more people to support their local community."
